  • Two meetings per year are organized : AUTEX has shown to benefit from an optimal mutual understanding between its members.  The 6-monthly meetings play a key role in discussing achievements, optimizing cooperation and outlining future strategies.
  • European Masters (E-TEAM) Programme in Textile Engineering : every semester students move to another region, lecturers come to teach during one week at the host universities.  It is a unique concept, offering an unparalleled platform of experienced lecturers and an advanced level of mobility for both students and lecturers.  The programme has been revised in 2017 and addresses students from all over the world.

  • Annual Conference : every year one of the members organizes an AUTEX Conference (since 2001), in which hundreds of researchers and companies participate.  The network wants to enhance the breakthrough of cutting edge fields such as nanotechnology, the circular economy, digital technologies, and so on, not only amongst its members, but also in industry.
